About this blog:

One day I was reading yet another mystic’s reference to living like a river — wondering what EXACTLY that meant as far as how I should conduct my life — when I realized that my work studying and restoring streams should tell me what that means in MINUTE DETAIL as well in the big picture. So I started letting it. The result is this exploration of the river as life coach. I hope you enjoy it!
